The class Introduction to Assembly provides an overview of the processes and methods used to assemble components into finished parts. Assembly is often performed on assembly lines, which may be manual, automated, or a combination of both. The three main assembly methods are mechanical fastening, adhesive bonding, and welding. Mechanical fastening uses fasteners to join components. Fasteners can join dissimilar materials, are inexpensive, and allow for disassembly. Adhesive bonding uses materials such as gels, liquids, or tapes to form a joint. Welding uses pressure, heat, or a combination of energy sources to create a very strong, permanent joint. These methods are sometimes used together.

The information presented in this class serves as a foundation for users to learn more about, and eventually perform, fastening and assembly. Understanding the differences between different assembly methods prepares users to learn about the more detailed and complex aspects of each method.
